    If these young kids dont have school due to tha and roads, their parents should be smart and make them stay home. They are too inexperienced to drive. So hey, snow day again today, keep the teenage drivers home and off the roads! They. Ant go to school then then shouldn’t be out driving

      Cedar Springs Schools were open yesterday, and the information i have read does’t indicate that the teen was at fault. Could the plow truck driver have crossed the line? Or maybe tired from working long hours lately?? Hmmmm….

      She does online schooling so maybe she didnt realize that schools were closed bc of the road conditions. Either way the only thing that is important is that she is alive and is getting better!
